Metamodern transmedia artist Donald Glover/Childish with Cam Ostrander

WHAT IS METAMODERN? Conversations is an offshoot of the ongoing research project, WHAT IS METAMODERN?

Our guest Camden Ostrander is an expert on all things Donald Glover/Childish Gambino and the writer behind Season 7 of the Dissect Podcast which explores in depth Childish Gambino’s album (and transmedia world) Because The Internet. On this episode, we discuss BTI along with Glover’s television projects, Atlanta and Community, all through the lens of metamodernism.
